Slide and Reveal seeks to use a flexible wall system to create transformable spaces. The movement is achieved by sliding a “wall” or a “panel”. A program or a space is revealed or redefined after the movement is completed. This two-story structure is composed by a series of rounded forms that are joined together, with a public program on the first level and a private program on the second level. The circular module is chosen to cater the nature of micro-unit, as circular space uses less material to enclose the same square footage as a rectangular structure. Selected walls are thickened to incorporate the principle of double-functioning elements. By taking the advantage of the site’s topography on the ground floor– a sloped hill that establishes a natural buffer zone – the public program embraces diversity that serves not only to the building user, but also to the community nearby.
